About the Department

The B. E. course in Computer Science Engineering was started in the year 1982 by the Department of Electrical Engineering. The Department of Computer Science and Engineering was established as a separate Department in the year 2004. The Department includes both Computer Science and Engineering and Information Science and Engineering. The Department offers UG, PG and Ph.D courses. Since, Information Technology is progressing very fast with continuous developments and to keep pace with it, the syllabus of both UG and PG courses undergo revision from time to time.
